and individual rights and not be imposing these devastating defense cuts. because what that does, when we show -- when we look weak, our enemies are much more willing to test us. and our allies are -- >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> why is that so? >> nothing he said is accurate. >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. number one, this lecture on embassy security. the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for. number one. so much for the embassy security piece. number two, governor romney, before he knew the facts, before he knew that our ambassador was killed, he was out making a political statement, which was panned by the media around the world. and this talk about this weakness. i don't understand what my friend is talking about here. this is a president who has gone out and done everything he had said he was going to do. this is a guy who repaired our alliances so the rest of the world follows us again. this is a guy who brought the entire world, including russia and china to bring about the most devastating, mo
, a total sham. and moreover, governor romney also proposes a $2 trillion defense increase. now, if you want to do that, you think there's a case for it, and some of the military people are wrong. they need it. then you at least ought to say how you're going to pay for it. >> howard? >> hey, joe? >> the fascinating thing about all this is the positioning. now, i actually disagree with joe on raising the entitlement age. i don't have a problem with raising the age on social security because i agree with you actuarily. raising the age on medicare is really a bad idea. it's the one thing that would make me not support simpson-bowles if i were in the congress because medicare is a health insurance program. it isn't about an entitlement. it's about figuring out how to get everybody health insurance. the one program we have that covers everybody that's universal is medicare. why would you want to raise the age on medicare? but i agree with you on social security and the other entitlements. we cannot continue to have this kind of level of entitlement spending if we're going to balance the budget. b
to the wood shed on wanting to spend more on defense budget, on wanting to perhaps be more active in syria. he you the ut terd the same lin heard. the notion of dumping more money into defense and also at least giving a veiled threat of more action in syria is enough to scare a lot of people who are war weary and sick of it. >> agree. i think rand paul reflects that sentiment inside and outside of the party. there are more traditional republicans going back 30, 40 years of looking at these things more objectively, looking at the costs and all of that. that's going to be an ongoing battle. i think tonight to your point, gene, that what the congressman has to do is not jump on this whole issue in a way that comes off partisan keeping in mind your point that a life -- many lives were lost, four lives were lost, and that to be sober in challenging the administration's position. >> that particularly -- >> >> is smarter politics. >> particularly important for him. >> and it's even important because the man at the top of the ticket has criticized the foreign policy of the obama administration but thr
when our words are not backed by deeds, when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut, when we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. it is time to change course in the middle east. one final thing, carol, on a campaign conference call yesterday romney's foreign policy team talked about some presidents of past they might be shaping their foreign policy principles after. they talked about the presidencies of jfk, truman and even bill clinton. after that first debate when a lot of pundits on the right and the left were sensing that mitt romney might be moving to the middle on domestic policy issues, there might be some of that on foreign policy when we hear this speech later on this morning. >> jim acosta, we'll check back with you. >>> okay. let's take another peek at the obama campaign's preemptive strike. remember, it's called a prebuttal because it's challenging a speech romney will not give for a couple more hours. listen. >> when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, "the new york times"
with deeds. our defense spending is deeply cut . we have no trade agenda to speak of and the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership but of passivity. >> steve: here is pete is here. >> good morning. >> steve: mitt romney would like to be commander-in-chief. did he make a good case for himself . >> it was a fantastic speech and speech about leadership and carrying the mantel for freedom and still in a dark and difficult world and used libya for the larger struggle we face. he put it in the context of the larger foil we have faced. there are forces of radical islamism that seek our destruction and we stand up up to that. there will not be daylight for israel. and red line for iran. >> brian: he brought up the fact george marshall said the best thing to do to avoid war is to build up our defense and make us stronger. that's the best deterrent in war and proposed to build that rather than shrink the military. >> that is right. that is the difference between governor romney approach and the president. peace through strength. and the president said standing back is less provocat
into defense of the many ludicrous and inaccurate things he's said where biden has more experience and a very clear agenda staying boiled to the president. you know, there is a little bit of a wildcard. maybe not a huge one. but ryan is smart. but also very self-centered. so he could get really caught up. >> i wonder, is there an actual skill to being a vice president? we joke that the only thing touf do is stay alive, right? but in the sarah palin case, there was this sense that wait a minute, by putting her on the ticket, if she isn't adequate to be president, it makes me question john mccain's judgment. are they above the bar where there's no real quality difference? >> i think there's an open question about ryan. he can be glib and telegenic that comes across as competent where palin didn't have that skill. we can't say l about. j was the last time a vice president made -- palin in 2008 is a dramatic one. estimates that it was one, 1.5 points is what she cost john mccain for being on the ticket. which is huge. think back to dan quayle. i've never seen a more dramatic contrast between the
to blame the rome rom ticket for making this an issue. with you should note impose devastating defense cuts, when we equivocate on our values and show weakness, when we look weak our adversaries are more willing to test us and our allies are. >> with all due respect that is bunch of malarkey. >> why is that so. >> not a single thing he said is accurate. >> vice president knows sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. [laughter] >> i always say what i mean. bill: that just now a sample of what you're going to get for the next two hours here. so much of the focus today though is about what joe biden was doing, when he was not talking. his body language, the arguably the most argued about item from last night's debate. that is where he start. steve hayes, senior writer "weekly standard.". fox news contributor. good morning there in danville, kentucky. >> good morning, bill. bill: start with the incumbent. how did joe biden do. >> the fact that so many people talking about demeanor, but the fact that he continually interrupted paul ryan but many times martha radditz, corr
and were bound for the ministry of defense in syria. >> very important statement. >> syria for its part -- >> yes. >> has said that this is an act of piracy because, remember, this was a civilian airliner that was bound for damascus that was forced down in anchora by turkish fighter jets. this is yet another piece of the puzzle raising the level of tension a little bit more in that part of the world. >> do we know if putin -- what are putin's plans. >> we do know that he had a trip planned -- an official trip planned for turkey, but it was postponed to december 3rd. this is what we're hearing now. we don't know if it's related to this incident or not. >> all the latest news. thank you very much. appreciate it. it is being called the most sophisticated and successful doping program in cycling history. his teammates say that lance armstrong was at the center of it. ♪ ♪ ♪ we're lucky, it's not every day you find a companion as loyal as a subaru. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. your soups are so awesomely delicious my husband and i can't stop eating 'em! what's...that... on
president to admit outloud that he he had no idea what was going on. ignorance is hardly a defense. the fact of the matter is there were over 230 security incidents there in libya. our consulate there in benghazi had been bombed twice. now, where else in the world are you aware of any consulate or embassy having been bombed twice? there were actually al qaeda flags flying above government buildings. when i went to libya last saturday. i was there most of the day, not a single person ever mentioned a video. this administration continues to have a lot of questions that go unanswered. in fact, compounded by the fact that the white house, the vice president, they continue -- they are just not being straight with the american people. they have a lot to answer for. >> congressman chaffets, of course, the statement released by chertoff and hayden is this. >> given what's been announced about the intelligence available before and after the september 11th attack. it is clear this the failure was not on the part of the intelligence community but on the part of the white house decision makers who shoul
-- made the defensive play of the night when he jumped at the wall and caught prince fielder's blast. take another look at it. there it is. the a's used great fielding and pitching to shut out the tigers, 2-0. the team will play game four of their series tonight. detroit leads 2-1. >>> the giants and the reds went to extra innings in cincinnati. reds' third baseman scott rolen bobbled a grounder. there it is, allowing buster posey to score. the giants took a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the tenth and then held on to win the game. the reds host the giants this afternoon, leading the series 2-1. >>> ben balt competes like any other boy, even competes in triathlon. nothing seems to stop him even though he lost part of his right leg to cancer. but something did stop ben in his last race in florida. his prosthetic leg broke in half. a group of marines was watching the triathlon. the marines lifted ben up and carried him across the finish line. ben's mom said everybody was crying and cheering on ben and the marines. very nice. very nice. >>> the next hour of the "cnn newsroom" begins right now. s
, secretary of defense said they'll get to the bottom of this. she cried on the president's shoulder. stephanie, i know you're not speaking for the state department and i know your job to put a lot of spin out there. but how do you explain this? to just people, to just americans 26 days to go who are on the fence who to vote for. >> you're right. i can't speak for the administration. i'm on the other side, i'm on the campaign. my job may be to spin but it's -- >> it's brooke. it's brooke. >> i'm sorry. brooke, but we put the facts out there every step of the way. i have great sympathy for that mother who lost her son. i don't know about the conversations that have occurred and i do need to leave it to the state department. >> focus on tonight. paul ryan he sat down with cnn and dana bash. gave us a preview from his side of the debate but we got a rejection of joe biden. why is that? is team obama afraid, you know, shielding him from the media may make him look less prepared? why is that? >> i'm sorry. i didn't get the actual question. >> we've been asking for interviews from vice pre
? >> well, you clearly had these conflicting reports of within 24 hours, the department of defense designated it internally as a terrorist attack because then you're able to mobilize more resources. but even then you had that quickly, the president, secretary of state saying the video. i mean, secretary clinton, as she was standing next to the coffin with the body of our ambassador and the three other americans who had been killed, as she was standing next to those coffins, she said, you know, horrific video. now, that's just shameful. we know it's not true. so i know it's an election season and i know that the white house will attempt to stall, but i really commend what is happening on the hill and i hope congress will continue to push on this. >> steve: i bet it's a topic at the vice presidential debate, which is something you know a little about. >> i imagine it will be. >> steve: liz cheney, thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> brian: i'll see you only radio a little later. >> gretchen: coming up, usually something you don't have to worry about until you get much older. n
,000 afghan military personnel. it is their responsibility to step up to their defense of their nation. we went for al qaeda. we went for bin laden. we accomplished that goal. and now -- and now it is time. and they're willing -- it is time for them to stand up as we draw down. congressman ryan, he made it very clear that governor romney has a very different view, though he says he thinks we should get out in 2014, although he says that makes sense, he says we should never have announced that, and i might add had we not, the afghans would never step up. we never should have announced that and when asked, do you guarantee you get out, he said it depends. i'm serious. you heard it. it depends on a situation on the ground. it depends. well, ladies, it depends on nothing other than a date as far as we're concerned. it is time for the afghanis to take care of their own responsibility. but like -- but like almost everything, it depends. it depends on which day you asked him the question. it depends. it depends on the circumstances. but it wasn't just on foreign policy it depends. it was also the
the ryan plan, then he'll be more likely to be on defense. and i think he's got to defend the romney vision as opposed to defending the ryan plan. >> and bret, you just said he wants to keep this on economic issues. and social issues have once again that reared their head in this campaign, because of some answers, conflicting answers that mitt romney has given on abortion. listen to what he said a couple of days ago to the "des moines register". >> do you intend to pursue any legislations, specifically regarding abortion? >> i don't -- there's no legislation with regards to abortion that i'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda. >> and then he seemed to clean it up yesterday on the trail. listen to this. >> i think i said time and again, i'm a pro-life candidate. i'll be a pro-life president. the actions i'll take immediately are to remove funding for planned parenthood. will not be part of my budget. and also i've indicated i'll reverse the mexico city position of the president. i'll reinstate the mexico city policy, which prevents us using foreign aid for abortions overseas.
